Differential repeats

• Mar 23, 2021 - 17:27

Hi there,
I'm transcribing a tune with three long verses in which the horn lines change markedly each time but the rhythm section parts stay the same. Do the bass and piano parts have to have three separate verses written out in full, or is it possible to give them a simple repeat while the brass have their separate verses. Is it possible to combine all this with a single set of rehearsal letters? Any ideas?


I'm sure there might be some way to hack things to get that result, but I strongly urge against trying. nothing, and I mean nothing, wastes more time in a rehearsal than mismatched parts, where some people have different numbers of repeats than others and you try to start at letter H second time and everyone is in a different place as a result.
